Just FYI I'm seeing some questions about Discord's business model in the comments, I was a paid contractor for them for a long while during their startup so I think I can shed light on some things.

They currently have many ideas for creating freemium business models similar to Twitch.tv (such as paid stickers, emotes, etc.) that they can sell to their users.

They're also thinking about creating a partnership program where their communities can sell their own custom stickers, emotes, etc. and retain a revenue share.

Nothing is in stone yet, but I know everyone on their team personally. They're a bunch of great, driven, but also integral people, and they have a wide range of options other than having to do shady things (like selling data) to financially support their platform.

I personally like Discord a lot, and even when my contract expired I continue to use it for my community because I genuinely think its the way to go (which is why I started working with them in the first place.) I think it has a really robust future... especially with their open API and community development initiatives.

Agree, very good post you made, and you have a great discord server yourself, lets hope PR get a Discord server.

Thanks Zeno and Blue for clearing that up. Offering free services and not selling out your data is actually quite the exception and not a common thing.

Dude these guys are total genius. Reached 11 million users in one year and soon they will have Video Chat and Screen Sharing. After that point GG to Skype and others. Seriously can't compete with this product with the way it's going.

Also they have a genius video team that is hilarious.

Over here at Discord HQ, our collective minds are absolutely blown.

We really want to express that we would not have made it here without our community's love, support, and feedback.

Let's take a moment and look back at the heights you've helped Discord reach in just a little over a year.

11 million users? Damn. And I'm not even using it to regularly.
